LXC-MONITOR(1)                                            LXC-MONITOR(1)

NAME         top

       lxc-monitor - monitor the container state

SYNOPSIS         top

       lxc-monitor [ -n name ]  [ -Q name ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       lxc-monitor monitors the state of containers. The name argument
       may be used to specify which containers to monitor. It is a
       regular expression, conforming with posix2, so it is possible to
       monitor all the containers, several of them or just one. If not
       specified, name will default to '.*' which will monitor all
       containers in lxcpath.

       The -P, --lxcpath=PATH option may be specified multiple times to
       monitor more than one container path. Note however that
       containers with the same name in multiple paths will be
       indistinguishable in the output.

OPTIONS         top

       -Q, --quit
              Ask the lxc-monitord daemon on each given lxcpath to quit.
              After receiving this command, lxc-monitord will exit
              immediately as soon as it has no clients instead of
              waiting the normal 30 seconds for new clients. This is
              useful if you need to unmount the filesystem lxcpath is
              on.

COMMON OPTIONS         top

       These options are common to most of lxc commands.

       -?, -h, --help
              Print a longer usage message than normal.

       --usage
              Give the usage message

       -q, --quiet
              mute on

       -P, --lxcpath=PATH
              Use an alternate container path. The default is
              /usr/local/var/lib/lxc.

       -o, --logfile=FILE
              Output to an alternate log FILE. The default is no log.

       -l, --logpriority=LEVEL
              Set log priority to LEVEL. The default log priority is
              ERROR. Possible values are : FATAL, ALERT, CRIT, WARN,
              ERROR, NOTICE, INFO, DEBUG, TRACE.

              Note that this option is setting the priority of the
              events log in the alternate log file. It do not have
              effect on the ERROR events log on stderr.

       -n, --name=NAME
              Use container identifier NAME.  The container identifier
              format is an alphanumeric string.

       --rcfile=FILE
              Specify the configuration file to configure the
              virtualization and isolation functionalities for the
              container.

              This configuration file if present will be used even if
              there is already a configuration file present in the
              previously created container (via lxc-create).

       --version
              Show the version number.

EXAMPLES         top

       lxc-monitor -n foo
              will monitor the different states for container foo.

       lxc-monitor -n 'foo|bar'
              will monitor the different states for container foo and
              bar.

       lxc-monitor -n '[fb].*'
              will monitor the different states for container with the
              name beginning with letter 'f' or 'b'.

       lxc-monitor -n '.*'
              will monitor the different states for all containers.

DIAGNOSTIC         top

       The container was not found
